Manually created topology backup
StackState Self-hosted v4.6.x
This page describes the process of exporting and importing manual topology data, i.e. components and relations that are not synchronized via StackPacks.
- 1.Create the export file:sts graph list --manual --ids Component Relation \| xargs \sts graph export --ids \> manual_topo.stj
- 2.Check the generated file
manual_topo.stjto make sure it contains a correct export of all your topology.
Breakdown of the export command used in the example above:
sts graph list --manual --ids Component Relationlists all ids of manually created components and relations.
| xargsconnects the
sts graph export --idsexports all graph nodes by ids.
> manual_topo.stjdumps the results in the file
Manually created relations to synchronized components may fail on import if these synchronized components do not exist anymore.
sts graph import < manual_topo.stj
